Axis has released their "best of the best" Q1798-LE bullet camera, touting "4K without compromise" with a large Micro 4/3" image sensor, custom made Canon zoom lens, Lightfinder 2.0, and using only "the same bandwidth and storage as regular 1080p cameras" in low light.
We bought and tested the Q1798-LE to examine these claims. Inside, we look at:
- How does it compare in day and night (color/~2 lux and IR/~0.02 lux) to other Axis cameras?
- How even is IR coverage? Are there hotspots or dark areas?
- How do Zipstream H.265 and H.264 day and night bitrates compare?
- How well does it integrate into Avigilon, Exacq, Genetec, Milestone, and NxWitness?
